Teachers Tip:
A child is like a butterfly in the wind. Some can fly higher than others. But each flies the best it can. Why compare one against the other? Each one is different. Each one is special. 

Safeguarding Tip:
Do not leave your Class unattended. Always ensure you leave an adult to supervise the children.
